Well what you see on their website is the height limit. Basically that's the reference height with 1-2 mm tolerance.

IIRC, by default, SG-08 Lite has more tolerance than the SG-08. You can also replace the Air Penetrator fan on top with a smaller one to get your more tolerance.

Hello guys,

I am looking to join the SG08-Lite club however I already have all my parts and I wonder if it will fit.



Intel Core i5-6600 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
MSI B150I GAMING PRO AC Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
Intel 730 Series 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
MSI Radeon R9 290X 4GB Video Card
Silverstone 500W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply

Obviously my current concern is with my PSU. I did read and search this thread a lot but I can't find a definitive answer.

I see Silverstone said the following:
"SX500-LG's modular cables will touch graphics card longer than 7.5 inches so it isn't a very good choice for the SG08-Lite. "

Yet I saw some other users say they have a 140mm PSU (the SFX LG is 130mm but modular).


So, anybody tried it? Or with another 130mm modular PSU?

I'm not sure your GPU will fit. Everything else looks good though.

Yeah I just saw that the height of my GPU is 5 inch and the max from the manual is 4.84. However some people reported fitting a MSI GTX 970 which is even over 5 inch. But that was with some minor cutting to some parts of the chassis.

Chaps, i have three of these cases 2xLite and one original. Can confirm 1070 & 1080 Founders can fit no problem in either.

I have the SX500-LG, I tried that PSU in my SG08-Lite but quickly went back to my previous PSU (Antec NeoEco 520W) even if it's not as good. You can't use the SFX --> ATX adapter as the modular cables get in the way of a long GPU. Even without using the adapter (I fixed the PSU with double tape), the cables still push hard against the GPU and the PSU intake doesn't line up with the PSU fan so it isn't great.
From my experience, to get the best fit in the SG08 with a long GPU you need a non-modular 140mm deep ATX PSU. You'll be able to save money or get higher wattage PSU too thumb.gif (the SX500-LG is quite expensive compared to standard ATX PSUs at equal wattage)

I also have the MSI GTX970 Gaming 4G in the SG08 and it barely fits due to height (and I can confirm you either need to remove the ODD bracket or cut it due to the GPU heatpipes). So if the GPU you're looking at is taller than MSI GTX970 Gaming (which is 140mm according to their website) there'll probably be issues.

I'm using a fully modular psu in my builds with sff to atx bracket. No probs with GPU.

Corsair SFF600. Very nice PSU

The corsair SF600 is 100mm deep vs 130mm deep for the Silverstone SX500-LG though.
The extra 30mm will give the clearance required for modular cables.

Thanks.

So last night I was ready to buy the case and a brand new PSU.
I had found both the SG08 at 20% off and the CX500M on sale as well at a known canadian site (Memory Express) so I was thrilled... until the checoutk when I realized both items were only in stock in one of their brick and mortar store mad.gif

Right now it seems the SG08 is not in stock anywhere in canada. Furthermore 2 of the big sites had it on sale and I fear it was to sell off the remaining stock once and for all.

So yeah, I'm pretty desperate right now.

Just get one on ebay and have shipped to Canada no?

This listing ships worldwide.
